JKP Dallas satsang and picnic with Swamiji was an uplifting experience!

Swamiji, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's pracharak in America, singing and explaining verses of Bhakti Shaktak to the devotees

JKP Dallas, the Dallas chapter of JKP Radha Madhav Dham held a devotional and uplifting retreat over the weekend. The theme of the day long retreat was "Bhakti Shatak", the hundred verse scripture revealed by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. The JKP devotees of Dallas felt amazing and happy to have Swamiji's warm and inspiring association and a whole 8 hours of continuous chanting and spiritual discourses.

Bhakti Shatak is a clear and concise description of the complete philosophy of the devotional path for the seeker of divine love. These verses explain the deepest philosophy of the main scriptures of Hinduism including the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and the Brahma Sutra, along with the Bhagwatam and the writings of the great Rasik Saints Roop Goswami, Sanatan Goswami and Jeev Goswami. Apart from its priceless philosophy, it's simple poetic form can easily be sung and remembered.

Don't forget about JKP's 2 upcoming Gita Camps in New York in Deecember, from 3rd - 7th at Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir and from 9th - 15th at Albany Hindu Temple! Click here for more info.

A specially constructed outdoor shrine of Radha Krishna was the center of everyone's attention
